BROCHURE RACK

Rhino killed in Namibia sparks poaching fears

31/12/2012 15:02:40 Rare rhino killing in Namibia
December 2012. So common has the killing of rhinos in South Africa become, that it barely rates a mention nowadays, with more than 600 killed for their horns in 2012 alone. However, the recent discovery of a dead female black rhino in Namibia has sparked fears that the terrible onslaught on rhinos might be crossing the border from South Africa.

The dead rhino was found in the remote Damaraland area of Namibia's north-western Kunene Region that borders Angola. Sadly, the female also had a young calf which could not survive without his mother.

According to press reports, one man has been already arrested and the two rhino horns were found and confiscated.
